TPE of the Week

Week 5

Teaching Performance Expectation 5
Assessing Student Learning

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Make a list of all the ways learning was informally assessed today. What tools don't assess learning? Hint: Asking, "Does everybody understand?" doesn't truly assess learning. What do your students know about their own progress? Other than test scores, how do they measure their learning? What assessment strategies could be implemented using computers or other electronic devices? How can a student self-assessment be integrated into one of the lessons today?
TPE of the Week

Teachers are surrounded by the TPEs every day. Sometimes it is hard to recognize effective instructional strategies if the labels aren't familiar. The TPE of the week project is designed to deliver daily ideas to mentors and teacher candidates to increase the conversation about why teaching and learning happens.
